Our Climate’s Fellowship empowers climate advocates to grow the climate justice movement by coaching them on how to engage the media, collaborate with partner organizations and coalitions, and meet with elected officials to advance science-based and equitable climate policies.
Fellows commit ~7 hours/week to the program for the school year. Most of the work is coordinated virtually, with several large in-person actions happening throughout the year. Often that time is spent on projects like:
- Planning and hosting workshops and events on campus or virtually;
- Writing blog pieces and letters to the editor to build public support for climate action;
- Participating in weekly video calls with other fellows;
- Gathering petition signatures and creating digital climate advocacy campaigns;
- Planning and facilitating meetings with elected officials.
Fellows in Massachusetts will receive one-on-one support from Our Climate’s MA Field Coordinator, Eben Bein (email@example.com), who will help their cohort identify and achieve shared climate justice goals.
Though most of the Fellows positions are unpaid, there is an option for 2 high needs students to be paid through our North Light Scholarship. This is included in the application, found here: ourclimate.us/fellowship/
